Update - Although I really don't think much rain will get here before Saturday evening, some people may be traveling to the show, so....

We will be canceling the bike show for this Saturday and using our rain date of October 15.

Hope you can still make it on the 15th!!.

Just modifying the title and first post for this year's show: Our church's 4th bike show is drawing near. Right off I-75 in Powell, TN (a North Knoxville suburb). Bikes, food, good times. Stop by and visit! The Time Warp Vintage Motorcycle Club has made it an official club event again.

Looks like a good show! The reversed head Triumph is pretty neat, but I like the 51 Triumph next to it and the RZ350.

These guys show up periodically at the Time Warp Tea Room on some of these. I try to get the RD400c and GL1000 there at least once a month.

Looks like a fun day out - any idea what bike this is? Never seen an engine like that, very cool
1929 Henderson Ace. Google them. Awesome bikes. He had found this barn find just a few weeks before and had not had time to do anything to it. We looked it over and suggested lube change, flush fuel system and clean the carb - it should run. A couple weeks ago he brought it to another show and it ran. Said our suggested steps were all he took. Plus adding a better seat.

Fifty years ago I watched a man slowly braze small pieces of metal back into a very rust damaged Henderson Four fender. He was probably in his 70s at the time and this was the last one he was attempting to save. He had four finished pristine examples which had started out as rusted out junk. A couple had been saved from the crusher in the 50s. This last one started out as a bare frame and he has searched world wide for parts. The fender he was rebuilding has been found in Baja half buried on the beach. I'm always amazed at how many still turn up. Schwinn bought Excelsior and then bought Henderson in order to save his company when bicycle sales dropped. When the depression started killing motorcycle sales he completely stopped manufacturing of motorcycles to save his bicycle business! At the time Schwinn was the 3rd largest motorcycle company in the US. In the early 70s I was allowed to visit the basement of the Triangle Company in Chicago. In the basement was several Henderson Fours purchased from the Chicago Police Department when they were retired. Most of them were in very good condition and the only reason they had been retired was the lack of available repair parts. When I saw them, I thought about the man brazing small pieces of metal to rebuild a fender. At the same time, Triangle was selling complete NOS Harley Davidson 45 engines for $39.95.

We are monitoring the huricane forecast, and will make a rain date or GO decision around Wednesday.
